By Michael J. Brooks
Judson College held its annual Employee Recognition Convocation on Nov. 4. College president Dr. David Potts presided.
"We celebrate the service of those who labor," Potts said. "We have bout 100 employees at our college who work in a variety of roles."
Potts told the assembled students that the employees labor, some in residence halls and some in offices and classrooms "on your behalf."
"This is not a perfect place," he said, "but we're all committed to an ideal. We provide Christian higher education especially for women."
Academic dean Sara Kiser and professor of music Elizabeth Hostetter were recognized for five years of service.
Professor of English Eloise Whisenhunt, art professor Ted Whisenhunt, computer support technician Traci Foster and professor of speech and journalism Michael Brooks were recognized for 10 years of service.
Executive assistant to the president Mary Ellen Clements and facilities staff worker Shirley Hogue were recognized for 20 years of service.
Facilities staffer Annie Mae King was recognized for 40 years of service.
After presenting gifts to the employees, Potts hosted a celebration luncheon for the honorees and their families.
